Events | Twitter gets you #NBAAllStarTO ready

For those of you living in or visiting Toronto this weekend, you can feel the energy and buzz that is taking over the city I call home. From the Canadian International Auto Show, Valentine’s Day and of course the NBA All Star Weekend – there’s something exciting happening at every turn. Twitter, one of my favourite social media platforms, is ready to help you enjoy and express your #NBAAllStarTO love with some new hashtag emojis – and I have to say, it’s gotten me excited!

Over the last few years, Twitter has evolved and grown to be a part of our every day lives. I started to notice that major events, concerts and trending topics started to have emojis associated with the use of popular hashtags. This weekend, international sport celebrities and fans from all over the world are congregating in Toronto for one of the biggest NBA events of the year. Twitter, in turn, got a few new hashtag emojis ready for us all!

  • “Official #NBAAllStarTO Emojis- from Kobe’s Black Mamba, to King Lebron’s crown, custom-emojis can be dropped into any tweet simply by using your favourite All Star’s #FirstNameLastName. See below for the East and West All Star emojis, sure to be a hit with fans during the weekend’s festivities”
  • “Back by popular demand: #KicksCam– because what would the NBA All Star game be without seeing the top ballers in their special edition shoes? From Friday to Sunday, the @NBA will Tweet 360-degree Vines of the players’ sneakers just before they step on the court. See link here for some stunning shots from last year, featuring King James.”
